The Mars Project: How Design & Innovation Got Us There, Dr. Steven Squyres
In January 2004, twin robotic explorers named Spirit and Opportunity landed on Mars. Expected to last for 90 days, the two rovers have now been exploring the Martian surface for more than six years. 4,000 highly qualified and motivated engineers and scientists were involved in the project. Squyres, a professor of Physical Science at Cornell University provides a fascinating insight into the initial concepts, design and development of this ground-breaking example of space exploration.
Never Fly Solo! The Power of Partnership to Reach New Heights in Business and Life, Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman
Manufacturers (and indeed any business) does not operate in isolation. Success is delivered through a network of support staff, co-workers and managers, as well as suppliers, vendors and distributors. The ability to build trust and work as a team creates a winning and sustainable business. In this keynote session, Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman will share insights into how to employ loyal “wingmen” to promote communication, integrity and trust; develop a collaborative culture of excellence and mutual support; and execute a safe operational game plan to survive, grow and win when the stakes are high.
